So True, So True

Intelligent Intelligence Reform: "ANY FEARS that an expanded Republican majority on Capitol Hill would simply become a larger tool for the Bush administration have already been put to rest in the lame-duck session of the past week. Most notably, Reps. Duncan Hunter, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and James Sensenbrenner, head of the Judiciary Committee, have exerted their independence in blocking the headlong rush to intelligence 'reform' legislation that puts current military operation in Iraq and Afghanistan at risk. For their pains and their real political courage in calling conventional wisdom into question, the two congressmen have been reviled as knuckle-dragging Neanderthals. The imperial Senate and the New York Times editorial page agree: No compromise! No quarter! The time for reasoned argument has past!"

Is this enough dissent for ya?
This just makes me like Duncann Hunter all the more. He is a practical conservative from California, unassuming (unlike Dreier) and fights doggedly when he feels it prudent. He seems to be doing the right thing here, and should be getting more kudos for it!
